We visited with my 8 year old niece and we had as much fun as she did. The tour with the owner Bob is a must do, he is very informative and funny too. The animals are well cared for and it's obvious that they enjoy being with him. I've never seen such interaction between a caretaker and such a diverse group of animals. The enclosures were a decent size, some were so large you could barely see the animal if they wanted to stay hidden. If you're on the tour ALL the animals came out to greet Bob. This is off the beaten path so you really have to be looking for it to know it's there but it's not difficult to find I've traveled all over Maine for 25 years as a truck driver and didn't find out about it until about two years ago. It was a 2+ hour ride for us but well worth it.
